Integrity is vital for any leader to thrive in today’s world. Integrity requires the courage to do what is right despite popular opinion. Employees who practice integrity in the workplace support what is morally and ethically right and positively reflect what the business represents to its staff and its customers.
Demonstrating integrity in the workplace shows completeness and soundness in your character. Integrity comes in many forms, but honesty and dependability are two traits that are expected in workplace situations. Without responsible behavior, distrust can make an environment tense and uncomfortable.
Follow Company Policies
Abiding by company policies is a powerful way to demonstrate integrity, cutting corners and neglecting to follow workplace regulations can lead to mistakes, problems and even dangerous situations.
Work When You Are On the Clock
Working diligently when you are on the clock is a clear example of workplace integrity. This will show your boss, co-workers and customers that you are a diligent worker. Socializing, surfing the internet, making personal phone calls, texting and frequent snacking are activities for break time
Respect Co-Workers and Build Trust
Respecting those you work with reveals your desire to create a healthy work environment. Polite communication, appropriate interactions and respect for co-workers thoughts and ideas demonstrate your ability to look beyond your own interests to pursue team-centered work goals. As you deal with co-workers honestly and respectfully, you establish a level of trust with them.
Exhibit Responsible Behavior
Integrity in the workplace often stems from moral and ethical behavior. Making sure there is no reason to question your conduct is one of the best ways to prove that you are an honest and dependable employee. Avoid using company products or equipment for personal use and submit exact receipts for travel or meal. Finally, do not promise what you cannot provide.
